What is The Pupil Premium?

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child. All cases are treated in confidence.

Funds are allocated to a range of initiatives and resources to ensure that pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.  We are committed in ensuring that our Pupil Premium funding is used to: narrow or close the gap between the achievement of the identified and their peers; raise attainment through the provision of relevant educational support programmes and address any inequalities between the identified pupils and their peers with regard to well-being as well as academic development. Ongoing monitoring of progress and outcomes is carried out throughout the year to ensure the effects of Pupil Premium funding are having maximum impact.
